About the race

The 2nd Annual Compassion in Action 5K

The 2nd Annual Compassion in Action 5k supporting the work of Global Effects, Inc. will take place December 1, 2018! Your registration makes a difference! This year, every race entry will provide warm clothing to a child in need in Romania or India! Celebrate by racing in your ugliest Christmas sweater and we’ll award the wildest design! This is a timed 5k event. We are a stroller friendly race and open to all ages. All participants will receive an ugly sweater inspired long-sleeve t-shirt and a finishers medal!

All runners, walkers, and stroller pushers will receive an ugly Christmas sweater inspired long sleeve tee at packet pick-up and medal when they cross the finish line! However, an even more important prize is that every race registration sends winter clothing to impoverished children across the world through our partner nonprofit organization, Global Effects.

Medals will be given three deep in each age group as well as Masters and Overall awards.

The age group breakdown for awards is as follows: 10 & under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.
